The Internet as Gold Rush

From a man-machine perspective

Consider this:

The Premise

Did you know that the most successful people who participated in the gold rushes of the last century were those who made and sold pickaxe handles?

Today, when asked about their competence level with the Internet compared to that of the average person, most people, even those involved professionally with the Internet, say that they are behind the average.

Can everyone be behind everyone else?

If you could handle the turbulence only a few percentage points better than your competitors, would you have a better chance of making it before they did?

In fact, what are your chances of making it at all in this brave new world of speed and connectivity without adding new tools to your kit for dealing with:

The speed with which an organization can make sense of this new world will be the difference that makes the difference.

Hard, technical issues, compared to organizational and social issues, are cut and dried. The hard is easy ... it is the soft that is hard.

The talk

This session considers the Internet from a number of perspectives.

If the Internet is likened to a Gold Rush, then this session will offer ways for you to draw your own treasure map.

The Take-Aways

AND you will have a great time!
